This year two movies on cricket will be released, one based on former India skipper Mohd Azharuddin's life (Azhar) and another on MS Dhoni named Dhoni: The Untold Story.

"I have always believed in our company's philosophy of bringing aspirational stories from the world to you characters who overcome adversity, stories that inspire minds. Yuvraj's story is not just a cricket story, it's a human interest story. People like to watch greatness.

He is an inspiration to a billion Indians and cricket fans globally, the way he faced odds in his life and career, the way he survived cancer and the way he fought back to earn his place in the Indian team. His story is worth telling and that's why we are extremely thrilled to have got this chance," Mark Ciardi, president and co-founder of Apex Entertainment, told TOI.

"The USA has a sizeable Indian population who follow cricket. A superstar like Yuvraj Singh is widely followed especially after he came to the US for cancer treatment.

It was one of our common friends Ash Vasudevan (Apex co-founder) who helped us connect with Yuvraj last year where he told us that he quite liked Invincible and Miracle which were produced by us and he would like a film made on his life as well. I am happy that he gave us the rights and we would do our best to not disappoint him," Ciardi further added.

The left-handed middle order batsman, Yuvraj Singh, is at present playing for Team India in the Asia Cup T20 tournament in Bangladesh.
